Yes, everyone in London has done this shot, but I have only been to London once. How did I do?

You need to clone all those people out Don, then covert to mono :)
Seriously though, I know the very place in the museum you took this from, visited last year. Did you take any other shots (closer up) of the stairwell/windows, some interesting shapes to be had?

Very impressive - both your pic and the building itself

Love the shot. Amazing place too, been there plenty with the kids. Always weird to see the photographs from before the roof too.

Too much competition: 27,855 British museum stock photos

BTW, on the wall it calls this the Weston Family Great Court. Yes, that Weston Family. To those in the UK, they own Selfidge's but over here they own a large bakery company, a grocery store chain (Loblaws and related brands) a pharmacy chain (Shoppers Drug Mart), and an upscale department store (Holt Renfrew).

None of them listened to me when I yelled out the window to all move to the left. :) I did take some others, I have at least one of the little window I was taking this photo from as well. We did not get to visit a whole lot of the museum, but I did see the Rosetta stone. My daughter wanted to go to the Manga exhibit advertised on the banner, but it had sold out for the day.

Great viewpoint Don.
Thanks!

You did well to capture the business of the place. I like the symmetry.

I have a shot from exactly the same spot! It's easy to imagine the window was designed with that in mind :)

Nicely done Don. I think if you straighten the verticals you have a lovely shot.
